Million Dollar Baby is deep

5 second plot: Maggie wants to become a championship boxer. And she wants old timer Frankie to train her. He is reluctant at first, but she practically stalks him into doing it. And she sure does have the talent.

5 second review: I don't really like boxing movies very much. But the boxing in this one is pretty great. The dialogue between the old timers is really funny. But don't get too comfortable, because there is some serious drama in here. I knew there had to be a dramatic reason for that Oscar.

IMDb score: 8,1/10

Catwoman is not sexy at all

5 second plot: It's about the most boring woman in the world who turns into a sexy crime fighting catlike superhero.

5 second review: Seriously, the intro almost bored me to death. Ten minutes after the intro I started getting really annoyed. I tried to fast forward but it only made me angrier.

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter,... and Spring is interesting

5 second plot: A young boy lives in a remote (floating) temple. He wants to become a monk just like his master. But he's got a long way to go and a lot of things to learn. We follow the story of the choices he makes and the paths he takes.

5 second review: If you're into ancient wisdom and Eastern symbolism, this movie is definitely for you. If you're not, you will find the first half comprehensible, but you will have difficulties with the second half. Apart from that, it's an interesting view on growing up, making mistakes and taking responsibility.

50 First Dates is so sweet

5 second plot: Henry meets Lucy and falls in love with her. The next day Lucy can't remember who he is. She was in a car crash and since then her memory resets every day. Henry tries to make her fall for him every day again and again.

5 second review: This is one of my all time favorite movies. It's such a beautiful, sweet, honest and funny story, I can watch it a million times and still smile every time Henry makes Lucy smile.
